|1949 DuMont Network PSA (Number 2 of 2)|
A 1949 DuMont Television Network-Public Service Announcement, Number 2 of 2. This PSA tells the young viewers of "Captain Video" to give everybody a fair chance, regardless of Race or Religion. DuMont was a cheap network, but they did a lot for many people. DuMont, in fact, aired the complete McCarthy hearings (sadly no copies of their coverage survives today).

|1949 Public Service Announcement|
A 1949 Public Service Announcement aired on the DuMont Television Network, reminding the young viewers of "Captain Video" that "freedom is everybody's job". This features the same background as the 1950 PSA I uploaded. DuMont was a cheap network, but in fact, they did a lot of good things, like airing the complete McCathy hearings (sadly no footage remains from their coverage). One must give them credit for good intentions.
